“Before Smore I used a document to share news, and adding photos and engagement pieces was too time-consuming to attempt…now my parents are interacting with me through the newsletter, and I’m seeing huge benefits in my building.”

“Before Smore, I was spending 2-3 hours getting caught up in the formatting and organization of my newsletters. Now I have created a system that helps me spend 30 minutes on my newsletter. Smore helps me stay organized and provides great ideas about topics to share with our families!”

“Before Smore, my newsletters resembled typed memos; after Smore, my newsletters are ‘works of heart’ from the school, filled with pictures of our students, videos, articles, clip art, and other engaging tools to keep our faculty and families informed.”
